That note has been in the Advansys drivers for several years now.  It must be buildable, since it exists in Mandriva2009.1, but unless you intend connecting an Advansys SCSI card (do you have a PCI bus??? - I have an Advansys SCSI card in the garage somewhere!!!) then don't bother building it.
Hmmmm...I now see you're building 2.6.30.1.  Mandriva2009.1 is 2.6.29.6(-ish).  It's possible that a recent change has finally broken the old DMA usage in advansys.c.  Anyway - I can't see you need it (nor any other SCSI driver).

I have a brand new SheevaPlug running the default Ubuntu install (with root filesystem transferred to SDIO), plugged directly into a Netgear 802.11g router.
If it's plugged directly in why do you later mention "54Mbps LAN"?  That's a Wifi speed.  Are you referring to other clients?

Network transfers to the plug from any machine on the local network are really slow, usually less than 1 MB/s. Everything is slow- FTP, HTTP, Samba, etc. Other machines on the network appear to be going at normal 802.11g speeds. Anyone have any ideas?

Where did that 192.168.232 network arrive from?  You haven't mentioned it anywhere!!

yet the account page tells me that it has shipped.
I didn't even realize there was an account page! Dark Blue on darkish grey doesn't show up well.
Mine is marked as not shipped yet.  Ordered 26 June.

I took a look at three different models of ethernet adapters which I could lay my hands on at short notice, and here are the entries logged to syslog at boot:
Given that they'll be dynamically loaded modules the output from lsmod could be useful, as it will show which modules have been loaded.

But it seems to mount as sysfs:
  root@ubuntu:~# mount -t sysfs /dev/mtdblock1 /mnt/mtdroot
Probably not.  That has just mounted sysfs onto /mnt/mtdroot - it hasn't mounted /dev/mtdblock1, so you aren't seeing its contents.  sysfs is a way to export the kernel datastructures to userspace.  It just ignores the device option to the mount command.
